More than twenty years ago, church and lay leaders perceived a need in our community for professional counseling that integrated current mental health practices with a Christian world view. Training for the field of Christian counseling was growing around the country, and Associates in Christian Counseling was founded within that spirit and tradition.
In 1991, ACC incorporated as a 501(C) (3) not-for-profit organization. Our founding director, Dr. Joseph T. Verga, led Associates with vision and skill for 22 years.
The ministry of Associates in Christian Counseling has expanded to satellite centers in Surry and Rockingham counties. These offices have made quality Christian mental health care more accessible to those who live north of the Piedmont region and in Virginia.
In 2013, Dr. Heath Greene assumed the role of director, and continues to lead Associates with the support of our Board of Directors and a dedicated staff of well-trained clinicians.
